How to write .format() correctly in Python?

Hi,

could you help me with that code challenge, please. I was not able to solve it. Thanks a million in advance.

strings.py
name = .format(akin)

When you use the .format it is usually set up kind of like this:

name = 'Some Name'

print("{}".format(name))

The challenge wants you to set the variable subject equal to the formatted line so it would look like this:

name = 'Some Name'

subject = "Treehouse loves {}".format(name)
